Hello, I'm Amanda Goodman. for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:08.

First tonight, five men have been arrested on suspicion of murder

:00:09.:00:11.

after the death of a man from stab wounds near Chelmsford.

:00:12.:00:13.

Officers were called to a property at Rettendon Common just before

:00:14.:00:16.

and found a 19-year-old man suffering from stab wounds.

:00:17.:00:20.

He was given emergency treatment at the scene but died.

:00:21.:00:24.

Five men aged between 21 and 42 have been arrested

:00:25.:00:27.

on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.

:00:28.:00:32.

A man remains unaccounted for following a fire which destroyed

:00:33.:00:34.

Crews were called to Gaston Street in East Bergholt at one o'clock

:00:35.:00:40.

this morning but couldn't prevent the roof collapsing.

:00:41.:00:42.

Firefighters searched the wreckage for a man

:00:43.:00:44.

It's not clear if he was in the house at the time.

:00:45.:00:58.

will soon be used to create a new wartime memorial

:00:59.:01:03.

It was started after a German bomber laden with explosives crashed

:01:04.:01:06.

It caused the first civilian deaths in the UK in the Second World War.

:01:07.:01:11.

'The wreckage of war comes to the peaceful seaside town

:01:12.:01:14.

April 1940, a German bomber crashes on Clacton

:01:15.:01:18.

injuring 160 and badly damaging 67 homes.

:01:19.:01:21.

Number 25 was completely destroyed and the two people inside,

:01:22.:01:24.

became the first two British civilian casualties of the

:01:25.:01:30.

Second World War to die on the British mainland.

:01:31.:01:33.

Looking at Victoria Road nowadays you would not even be able

:01:34.:01:37.

to spot a small sign of the destruction.

:01:38.:01:41.

That is because the only small sign is a plaque on this

:01:42.:01:44.

bench which is believed to have been stolen.

:01:45.:01:46.

Four years ago in an office move at Clacton Town Hall, an old Post

:01:47.:01:54.

It was the Air Disaster Relief Fund and the ?243, 13 shillings and

:01:55.:02:01.

sixpence had lain forgotten for nearly 70 years.

:02:02.:02:07.

It is now worth ?1700 and that money plus 10,000 from

:02:08.:02:12.

the council will pay for a proper memorial.

:02:13.:02:15.

We thought it could be something that can be done a

:02:16.:02:18.

It was only when we found the money we got the idea.

:02:19.:02:23.

We're going to look at a new bench, a memorial with a plaque on it, some

:02:24.:02:27.

The memorial will be ready in time for a ceremony on April 30, the 77th

:02:28.:02:36.

The Transport Secretary says a decision on a new river crossing

:02:37.:02:45.

between Essex and Kent will be made in the next few weeks.

:02:46.:02:48.

There have been calls for a rethink on the plans.

:02:49.:02:50.

Some MPs claim the proposed route through Tilbury

:02:51.:02:52.

and won't do much to ease congestion at Dartford.

:02:53.:02:56.

A final decision was expected last year.

:02:57.:03:00.

The whole issue of Dartford is one that's very strongly

:03:01.:03:02.

The traffic problems there are acute.

:03:03.:03:05.

We are absolutely committed to addressing them and we'll be setting

:03:06.:03:08.

A charity in Suffolk has helped to re-house nearly half the number

:03:09.:03:13.

of rough sleepers officially recorded in a survey

:03:14.:03:15.

The Selig Trust runs the Winter Night Shelter

:03:16.:03:20.

It's now found accommodation for 13 people who had been sleeping rough.

:03:21.:03:26.

A fairly cloudy end to the weekend but it

:03:27.:03:35.

does look like there are improvements on the way.

:03:36.:03:37.

Here's what's going on in the bigger picture.

:03:38.:03:39.

It's these two weather fronts that have been making

:03:40.:03:41.

their way slowly through towards the east today.

:03:42.:03:43.

But a ridge of high pressure building in tomorrow

:03:44.:03:45.

So, putting the detail onto the map, then, we'll see that

:03:46.:03:49.

rain clearing out as we move through this evening and overnight.

:03:50.:03:52.

A few clearer spells as we move into the early hours.

:03:53.:03:54.

Those temperatures falling to an overnight lows of

:03:55.:03:56.

So, a fairly cloudy start to the day tomorrow.

:03:57.:04:00.

I think we will see some brighter intervals developing

:04:01.:04:02.

Some nice spells of sunshine before we see more in the way

:04:03.:04:06.

of cloud again, coming down from the north into the afternoon.

:04:07.:04:08.

Our maximum temperature tomorrow, 14 Celsius.

:04:09.:04:10.

So if you catch some of that sunshine, it

:04:11.:04:12.

We're staying mild as we move through the first part of next week.

:04:13.:04:26.

Thank goodness for some warmer weather at last.

:04:27.:04:29.

We're back at 6:25 in Breakfast, with more news and weather.
